Mintz has expanded its litigation group with the addition of Jacob Hupart as a Member in the firm’s New York office. Mr. Hupart’s practice encompasses complex commercial litigation, including cases involving securities, employment, and environmental claims, as well as class action litigation, white collar criminal defense, and regulatory investigations. Mr. Hupart has extensive experience representing clients in a variety of industries, including financial services, energy, education, and the media.
“We are pleased to welcome Jacob to the firm, where the versatility of his litigation experience and his talent will add depth and breadth to our strong and growing litigation group,” said Bob Bodian, Managing Member of Mintz. “His impressive background and reputation are consistent with the firm’s emphasis on professional excellence, and clients will benefit from his diverse skillset and strong track record."
Prior to joining Mintz, he was an associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, where he handled a broad range of litigation. While attending law school at Harvard, Mr. Hupart was a summer intern in the Violent Crimes & Terrorism Section of the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. In law school, he served as an executive technical editor and an articles editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review and as a technical editor and an article editor of the Harvard International Law Journal.
As an undergraduate at Columbia University, Mr. Hupart was awarded the Euretta J. Kellett Fellowship, which funded his two years of study at the University of Cambridge in England.
Mintz’s New York office recently also welcomed Karen Won an intellectual property attorney with comprehensive experience across all aspects of a trademark practice – counseling, disputes, prosecution, and transactions – as a Member.
